In other news, the "son of heartbleed" has been announced and says you should be worried. Linux Mint 17 was released over the weekend and reviews OpenMandriva 2014.0.

In an email Sunday, Joshua Hesketh, President, Linux Australia, wrote, " 2014 books are nearly wrapped up after an excellent event in Perth. The conference is looking to have a final loss of approximately $40k."
